The Ground Pound,[1] also referred to as the Stomp,[2] is a recurring move in the Sonic Boom video games. When performing this technique, the user does a downward attack.

Description

When performing Ground Pound, the user launches an attack downward from a position in midair and strikes the ground with enough force to create a minor shock wave. The execution method of this move depends on the user. In gameplay, the Ground Pound serves as an offensive maneuver, capable of damaging enemies and destroying obstacles. It can also be utilized to activate certain gimmicks.

Game appearances

Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric

In Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, the Ground Pound is referred to as the Stomp[2] and is used by Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy. In this game, the characters execute the Ground Pound in the following ways: Sonic curls into a ball and spin attacks downward, Tails drops down on his rear, Amy hammers directly into the ground with her hammer, and Knuckles dives his fists into the ground.

To use the Ground Pound in gameplay, the player must press Snnwiidsybuttondisco while in the air. This move is particularly useful for activating Buttons on the ground. If done correctly, the Ground Pound can temporarily stun enemies, including those that can make themselves temporarily invulnerable.
